A 37-year-old Austin man is suing a woman he says was texting while they were watching the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” on a date at a Texas movie theater. Source
"Brandon Vezmar filed the lawsuit in Travis County small claims court on May 11, the Austin American-Statesman reports. He is seeking $17.31, the price of a ticket to the 3D showing of the popular movie.
Vezmar claims she was in “direct violation” of the theater’s policy and her actions “adversely” affected his viewing experience, the newspaper reports.
“While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant’s behavior is a threat to civilized society,” he wrote in the court filing.
The unidentified 35-year-old woman from Round Rock, who met Vezmar online, told the newspaper on May 16 when she learned about the lawsuit, “Oh my God. This is crazy.”
